This spring, Digital Media Academy is running immersive, one-week Spring Break Virtual Camps across a wide range of disciplines, including coding, music production, artificial intelligence, animation, video game design, entrepreneurship, and other STEAM fields.
In order to provide an opportunity for all talented learners to join a camp, for the second time ever, we are offering 1,000 FULL scholarships worldwide.
Have we piqued your interest? Here are the details.
21st Century Learning
With businesses worldwide undergoing a digital transformation, not only are digital media and technology skills a rewarding pursuit in themselves, but obtaining them is a key ingredient for success in the job markets of the future.
“Our goal is to get students ready for the 21st century world,” says Bruna Gomes, CEO. “We want to spark the passion of the next generation of innovators and creators. We know that if we provide the right tools, they can do more. They can be more.”
With that in mind, Digital Media Academy’s Virtual Spring Camps combine the best that online learning and traditional learning have to offer, creating a deeply engaging, interpersonal and skill-building approach to virtual education in STEAM fields.
Here’s what one of our students has to say about the virtual learning experience at Digital Media Academy.
Who Should Apply
Scholarships are open to all learners aged 9 to 18 who show aptitude or special interest in the camps’ areas of focus. There are no limitations on family income or geographic location – the only limitations are a learner’s aptitudes and passion.
With each scholarship covering the complete cost for a spot in a Virtual Spring Camp, Gomes hopes to open Digital Media Academy’s doors even wider to talented young learners who want to take their passion to the next level.
“We want to build up the next generation of digital leaders,” he says. “We want to provide talented learners from all walks of life with the opportunity to pursue their passion, build their portfolios and level up with the support of industry leaders and experts.”
The week-long camps are offered in two age categories (9-12 and 13-18) and in disciplines such as Filmmaking, Drawing and Design, MIDI and Beatmaking, Applications Programming, Game Design, Content Creation for Social Media, and many more.
Virtual Spring Camps will be held from March 14th to April 14th.
Scholarships are limited to 1 week-long course per student. Applications are open now, and the deadline to apply is March 4.
We believe that our scholarships inspire students to pursue their dreams and provide the education and experience they need to do so. But don’t take our word for it. Here is what previous scholarship winners have to say about their experience.
“The scholarship facilitated my experience with a Robotics class. If it had not been for the scholarship I wouldn’t have had the privilege. I am now a sophomore at Illinois Math and Science Academy and currently using my knowledge learned at Digital Media Academy.
I am now closer to my dream of becoming an Astronaut from Illinois. I am attending a prestigious school and I thank Digital Media Academy for giving me the opportunity to shine.”
“It was a very memorable moment in my life that I still brag about from time to time. The teacher was amazing and informative. I learned so much, not only in animation but in navigating my life’s path. My scholarship was monumental in choosing my direction in life. I’m still very thankful for the opportunity.
It helped me navigate my future and interest in animation and bring my skills to a new level. I continue to hone my art skills and was very motivated after such a great experience.”
“It was an awesome experience that allowed me to see what being in a university is like. Participating in this program has increased my desire to attend a university.”
